As TYPO3 community manager I write articles and publish community reports about what is going on in the community as you can see on news.typo3.org. The contents of such a report is closely tied to my work, but it does not show what I actually do.
Day 1 starts with writing only. I need to write the community report October 2011, the third Quarterly Report for the TYPO3 Association and I have taken on the blogging challenge. That basically means shutting down other communication, like mail and social networks in order to focus on these tasks. Shutting down other communication is hard, because I usually also need those channels to write my articles.
This coming week the national committee concept (including evangelists), marketing, the typo3.org relaunch are on my agenda. I have quite some regular online meetings. Today with the release team and the screen cast team. Thursday with the design team and some meetings with Andriy Kushnarov about distributed team management and coaching in general and with Francois Suter about documentation and the community in general.
At the end of everyday I will give a summary of what happened that day and explain a bit of what I am doing in general. Please feel free to react, to suggest or to comment.
I will be a little more active on Twitter these days. You can follow me on Twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/benvantende
